  1. Two spreads (title page, using a public domain image modified in Photoshop, and first spread of the text) from a recently published satirical novel that pokes fun at consumer society, religion, corporate culture and more. (I didn’t design the cover, so it’s not included here.)

    I used public domain woodcuts from the 15th-17th centuries, sometimes modified in Photoshop, to evoke the religious themes and keep the design from getting into the text block rut. I love the strength of lines and the pure black and white of old woodcuts, and they’re fun to manipulate.

    (I made the text nonsensical to avoid offending anyone, but I couldn’t take the illustrations out. If they offend you, I apologize.)
